$220,000 MEGA Millions® Ticket Sold in San Francisco Still Unclaimed
SACRAMENTO – Exactly one month ago today, one lucky California Lottery player who purchased a MEGA Millions ticket in San Francisco came up a big winner by matching five of six numbers in that night’s draw. The problem? That person still has not come forward to claim their $220,311 prize.
The winning ticket successfully matched the numbers 1, 16, 29, 36, and 50, missing only the Mega number 16. The unknown winner purchased their ticket at Quarts N Pints, which is located at 2434 Noriega Street in San Francisco.
The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their ticket, keep the ticket in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.
